I'm embarking on a major publicity drive for my pest control business, Species Management.

Anyone in Devon who can refer business to me will be much appreciated, no customer would be too large or small, from councils and shopping centre owners, major arable farms, to smallholdings or someone with mice in their attic.

I'll happily pay a finder's fee of 10% of the price charged to anyone who can introduce me to new customers.

Have you thought about speaking to HMS Raleigh ?
They have many snags with sh**ehawks and I dont think the
current contractors are that good.
If you can get in there, then maybe HMS Drake would be also up for your services.

Also just been looking at Landshare.
Seen people offering their services for the same kind of thing
Maybe try offering on there

Or speaking to your local council. They're full of dirty rats

Have you got any poster/flyers you could put in shops/ farmers suppliers......Most people are a little reluctant to admit to a vermin problem

You can with a permit. And Natural England, who have dedicated themselves to protecting vermin, hand them out like like A-levels these days.

Does that mean you are starting a new line in sausage making, rats, mice, fox?
Don't forget to add some pork!
I have tried the approach of advertising in Mole Avon etc for vermin control (just trying to get more deer stalking land) it was a waste of time, recommendation is the key to success in this field.

avoid the van signs that say "blah,blah blah discrete pest control ,blah blah blah " in big yellow letters

in the building trade trust and word of mouth is ace but active phone calls and advertising can help ,pest control has similarities with building
